“The Lodge”
Reviewed 24 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

person found this review helpful

We stayed for one week in the Lodge where Gilly and Dave welcomed us and showed us around our accommodation. The Lodge is really spacious for a holiday. A good lounge with sofa and a dining area. Kitchen was large and even includes a washing machine. Nice touch to have a small bottle of milk and tea and coffee to get our holiday started, very nice to have biscuits as well. The bathroom is a 'wet room' with plenty of room. Bedroom is cozy with comfortable double bed. Gilly was often available for a pleasant chat of how our day was spent. Chats often included Gilly giving us advice on places to eat in the local area. We quickly felt as if we had known Gilly and Dave for long time. Definitely recommend the Lodge for a couple coming to the Isle of Wight.

“Perfect location away from it all”
Reviewed 16 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Arethusa cottage lodges are in a wonderful secluded setting in the grounds their is a in door swimming pool and sauna, the lodge we stayed in was immaculate and tastefully decorated. Theirs plenty of wildlife to see in the garden red squirrels, birds and a fish pond at the bottom of the garden. The property backs onto a vineyard which is well worth a visit and all other attractions are within a 30 minute drive we went to Osbourne House, Ryde, Cowes, Sandown, Shanklin, Needles.
Gill and Dave are great hosts they made us welcome and recommended Ada Mediterranean Restaurant and The Pointer Inn both were excellent we she'll return.

Hi Trevor and Tina, Thank you for a lovely reveiw. So glad you enjoyed your stay with us and for leaving the cabin so clean and tidy.The pool is for the use of the cabin and not the lodge unfortunately but if clients would like to book them both for familys then the pool can be used for both. Dave and I look forward to seeing you both in the near future. Love Gilly & Dave

“Brilliant Stay Brilliant Hosts”

The stay of the over 25's at the lodge was a peaceful oasis with the hosts Gill & Dave we always on hand if you needed advise
The lodge is a great place well furnished from bed room , kitchen and living room and the drench shower well was great
The whole premises is an oasis far from the madding crowd and in a location you would never think it was there, the gardens were very well kept and the fish was great to sit and watch the day go by.
We are going back next year with no doubts
To our hosts thank you

“Let's keep this place a secret.”
Reviewed 15 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

I don't really want to tell you how special Gill and Dave,s place is. You w I'll all go and book it up.
Anyone reading this and wondering, I would say, just do it. It was easy and Gilly kept in touch throughout.
We have been visiting the island for 32 years. But Gilly and Dave recommended some new places fo us to try.
The lodge is lovely, cosy, very clean and
it has everything you need.
Location perfect, easy to get to everywhere you may wish to visit.
Directions to Lodge were very good, as the lodge is tucked away The garden is tranquil and mystical. I am sure there are fairies by the pond.
We will visit again, the next time as friends.
Big hug for Barley the dog.
Alison and Paul

The location is perfect for that quiet relaxing retreat, the gardens are beautifully maintained. Our lodge had everything in it we could have wished for ~ home from home ~ Gill and Dave made us feel so welcome and gave us many tips of where to go and places to eat.
